Amazon Working On Streaming Service For Video Games

Description

According to Business Insider, the service will be like “Netflix for video games.” Amazon already owns Twitch, the world’s biggest live-streaming video game service. The new feature will allow players to stream games rather than having to buy or download them. It isn’t expected to premiere until around 2020 at the earliest.

  • Apple May Offer Video Game Streaming Service In The Future

    Apple is planning a subscription service for games, according to five people familiar with the matter. The service would function like Netflix for games, allowing users who pay a subscription fee to access a bundled list of titles. Apple ($AAPL) began privately discussing a subscription service with game developers in the second half of 2018, said the people, all of whom requested anonymity to discuss unannounced plans. It’s unclear how much the subscription will cost or what kind of games Apple will offer. The service is still in the early stages of development, and Apple could ultimately decide to abandon it. The company has also discussed partnering with developers as a publisher, according to two people familiar with the talks, which could signal Apple’s ambition to assume distribution, marketing, and other related costs for select games. Website comicbook.com shares that A new report from the team at Cheddar suggests that the company behind the iPhone and Mac line is looking to start a “Netflix for games” service, one that would work with a number of companies on a stronger distribution scale. There’s also word that it may consider stepping into the role of publisher, to keep a better handle of the games that will be available on the service. Alas, that’s all we know thus far, as we haven’t heard exactly what kind of games the company is considering. AAA titles would obviously be big, since it could draw in key partners with their hit games (like Epic Games and Fortnite, for instance). But there’s also the mobile front to consider, as its iPhone and iPad devices would easily benefit from on-demand mobile games, as that would potentially free up room on said devices. But before you get too excited, the report suggests that, at the moment, it’s just a concept; and there’s a slight chance that Apple may just give up on it entirely, depending on how its research goes. After all, PlayStation Now isn’t exactly setting the world on fire, mainly due to high pricing. Others, like Amazon and Google, have also expressed interest in such service, though nothing’s been set in stone just yet. That’s not to say the on-demand model doesn’t work. Xbox Game Pass has been thriving over the past few months, thanks to its addition of first-party releases like Sea of Thieves and Forza Horizon 4, as well as a variety of third-person and indie releases. It’s got a low price of just $10 a month, making it a hit for those that want to enjoy gaming at an affordable rate each month. Apple has made advancements with its tech in the past, so who knows, it may just be able to get a service figured out for its millions of users. The real question is if it can do so based on working with its technology, and at a good price to boot. Guess we’ll see what the next few months bring.
